In the world of fashion, the importance of building a wardrobe with versatile foundational elements is commonly stated amongst bloggers and other stylist/professionals. The essentials may include black pants, great pair of jeans, white button down shirt, jean jacket, skirt, blazer and so on… I always find it helpful to read what stylish-dressing-gals suggest are the must have item’s to own for creating outfits that are classic and easy for mixing seasonally and styling for different events/occasions.
As an interior stylist and decor blogger the same principles can be applied to key home decor items to own in your home. There are several pieces that I’m going to outline in a new series called Home Decor Essentials. I’m going to highlight my favorite foundational elements for building a versatile arsenal of decorative items so that your prepared for any season/occasion inside your space.
I’m going to list my top most used decorative items and then search them out from some of my favorite retailers. These essential items will be versatile pieces you can use year after year, in many different seasons for a variety of vignettes and occasions. This is also a great list for someone who is about to get married and register for home accessories, about to buy a new home or someone looking for guidance when they are out in a local home store and don’t know where to begin. I thought it would be fun to see how my home decor “essentials” look through the lens of different retailers.
So today we are shopping for our “essentials” at Amazon. Amazon has great options when it comes to home decor and with some of the shipping options being two days you really can’t go wrong!

Here I rounded up decor essentials from AMAZON!
Throw Blanket– It goes with out saying a beautiful blanket draped over a sofa always looks beautiful and welcoming. I love the texture of this one. It’s a great price too!
Throw Pillows– Going with a classic buffalo pattern pillow will carry you through every season and a neutral like gray can’t ever be wrong.
Tray– I love using trays- all over our home. My favorite is on our coffee tables.
Woven Basket– Great for storage, for hiding kids toys, blankets and books
Glass Vase or Large Mason Jars- I love a fresh vase of flowers in the kitchen and this glass hurricane shape is so classic and beautiful.
Stack of books– A stack of books is so simple and classic. Amazon has some of my favorite design books and nothing looks more stylish on a coffee or side table.
Pitcher– A white pitcher is classic and effortless. I use my fine for fresh flowers or faux flowers. It looks beautiful on the kitchen counter or dining table.
Cutting Board– Cutting boards look great in the kitchen leaning against the wall, perfect for serving cheese and crackers at a gathering or cocktail party.
Topiary– If you have black thumb with indoor plants like me I love that these little faux plants have a distinct and sophisticated shape, they look great on a shelf, office, guest bedroom or bathroom. Plus you never have to water or worry about them dying.
Cake stands– I love these for entertaining and I tend to get them in many different sizes, I love when they are tiered as well!
Wreath– I love changing my wreaths out for the season but if you would just rather keep it simple go with a magnolia wreath or a boxwood, the greenery is always going to look welcoming.
So here you have my Home Decor Essentials- picked from Amazon. Notice they could work in any season, they can be used in many different ways all around your home. These essentials have a bit of a Farmhouse style to them however I’ll be sure to mix that up retailer to retailer and put different spins on style as well.
I hope you enjoyed learning what my go to essentials are for home decorating. If you want to see examples of these essentials in use- head over to my Instagram and see if you can spot them. I bet you will see at least one of these items in every photo!
